Health Benefits of MCT Oil:
MCTs are vastly missing from “modern Western” diets. MCT is one of the top sources of essential healthy fats and are burned by the body for fuel instead of being stored as fat. When MCT oil is consumed daily, it can aid in weight loss by making you feel fuller and by helping your body absorb more vitamins and minerals. MCT can also help to improve your energy level and your mood which both aid in maintaining a healthy weight.
Human studies of MCT have shown that this fatty acid can actually help to lower lipid levels and improve cardiovascular health. Additionally, MCT doesn’t stimulate a surge in insulin which makes it a good source of fat for those suffering from diabetes.
MCT Oil can also be beneficial for your brain. In people affected by Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s certain neurons have become resistant to insulin or have lost the ability to utilize glucose which leads to those neurons slowly dying off. MCT Oil may be able to help rescue these neurons and protect them from further damage. According to Mental Health Daily, “MCT supplementation boosted cognition in individuals with cognitive impairment and mild forms of Alzheimer’s disease after just a single dose. While not everyone improved from the MCT treatment, those with certain genetics experienced notable improvement.”
MCT Oil is very gentle on your stomach. Not only does it get absorbed in your intestines and then liver, but it can actually help you get the most out of the food you eat. Adding MCT Oil to your diet can help you maintain a healthy diet that will encourage your body to utilize all it can from the other healthy foods that you eat. This makes MCT Oil the natural choice for those suffering from stomach issues and when combined with CBD, you are truly getting the best of both worlds.
Is MCT oil safe for my pets?
Absolutely! Our Doggy Be Good Tincture from Green Garden Gold is supplemented with MCT. A recent study by Dr. Becker showed that MCT oil is essential for the aging pup. MCT Oil can help to raise energy levels and promote mental clarity on dogs over the age of 7. As a dog ages, he can experience a range of issues from arthritis and achy joints to digestive issues and weight gain. Combining CBD, with all its known benefits, with a supplement like MCT you can maximize the benefits of both supplements. The MCT allows for faster absorption of CBD and has its own health benefits independent of CBD.
